Keep Your Garden Green with a Water Butt: Ensuring Adequate Water during Hot Weather

Firstly, let's acknowledge the majestic simplicity of a water butt - an ingenious reservoir for harvesting rainwater. With each shower, every drizzle, and even during thunderstorms, Mother Nature provides us with this pure, untapped source of H2O. By collecting rainwater in a water butt, you gain an invaluable supply to nourish your garden, saving the precious water from your taps for tasks that genuinely require it. Trust me, the joy of self-sustaining your plants while cutting down your utility bill is beyond gratifying!

We'd like to emphasize the fact that during periods of extreme heat, your water butt might only provide a limited supply of water for up to three days. While this might not sound like much, understanding this limitation is crucial in managing your water usage effectively.

During hot weather periods, water availability can be a challenge to maintain.

A water butt is an excellent way to store rainwater, saving it for the hotter days ahead. With a water butt, you can keep your garden green and beautiful even during the most extreme weather conditions.

Should I buy a water butt, water barrel or water tank?

Collecting rainwater used to be just the pursuit of the hardened gardener but in recent years, more and more councils across the UK have started to install water butts on new build houses to stop flooding and to save their sewage systems from being overwhelmed.
